randonneur (splayed) handlebar options?

looking for something like this:



(these are Nitto Randonneur bars)

but with a 31.8 mm clamp. any suggestions? This is the only bar set I was able to find, just browsing through a few sites.

They're not shaped the same as in your picture, but the ones on my Sojourn flare out like this:


According to the 2010 specs, these are a WTB Mtn Drop, 31.8 handlebar, and I assume that's what is on my 2009 bike:

If you're not attached to your 31.8 stem, you could spring for a 25.4 or 26.0 stem and choose from many rando bars. I know of zero 31.8 bars that have the upward bend on the flats.

You could also get some shims for the stem so you can use a 25.4 or 26.0 bar with your 31.8 stem. I have the Noodle bar on my LHT and used the shims with a Thomson stem and have had no problems at all.

I dont currently have a 31.8 clamp on this bike but I do on my other bike & like the thicker bars. Thanks for the tips, I appreciate the feedback!

Ritchey's Biomax bars are similar, but far less extreme than the Nittos.
